Your Vision. Your Future.

Is your child having a hard time seeing the board in class?

Do you struggle to read fine-print in books and menus?

Regular comprehensive eye exams involve a series of tests that enable your Midlothian eye doctor to check your eye health and vision. This type of eye exam can only be performed by an eye doctor, and shouldn’t be confused with the vision screenings given in schools or other non-professional settings.

Having regular comprehensive eye exams is crucial when it comes to protecting your eyes from sight-threatening diseases, and ensuring that your optical prescription is up-to-date.

A comprehensive eye exam can also reveal signs of a general health condition like diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol.

Why Is It Important to Get Your Eyes Tested Regularly?

Comprehensive eye exams are an important part of maintaining great vision and eye health for the entire family.

During your eye exam, your eye doctor will check for any refractive errors or visual skill deficiencies that may hinder development or learning, and diagnose, manage, and treat eye diseases and conditions, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration that can cause severe vision loss in adults.

Many of these sight-robbing conditions show little to no symptoms until they’ve already caused learning difficulties, significant damage to the eye, and/or irreversible vision loss. Routine eye exams ensure early diagnosis and treatment of these and other conditions.


What to Expect From Your Eye Exam

  • Glasses/contact lens prescription updates

    We'll provide you with an updated prescription so that you can see clearly. Some people require a new prescription every year, whereas others only need a new prescription every 2-3 years.

  • Evaluating your child’s vision for learning

    Conditions such as strabismus and amblyopia, and visual skill deficiencies such as convergence insufficiency can negatively impact your child’s learning.

  • Diagnosis & treatment of eye diseases

    Eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy may show no symptoms until it’s too late. The earlier the treatment, the more effective the outcome.

  • Rule out signs of systemic diseases

    Common systemic diseases such as diabetes and stroke can first be detected in the eyes as part of a comprehensive eye exam.

Comprehensive Eye Exams FAQs

Is a comprehensive eye exam the same as a vision screening?

No. Vision screenings like the one performed for children in school or at optical-only stores only check for 20/20 vision. They do not check for the presence of sight-threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts. They also do not check for visual skill deficiencies such as problems with visual tracking or processing. Comprehensive eye exams are more thorough and use advanced equipment to evaluate your vision and eye health.

How often should I get an eye exam?

Eye doctors usually recommend that you come in for a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. This ensures that your glasses or contact lens prescription stays up to date and that signs and symptoms of developing eye conditions are caught early before they cause lasting damage.

When should I bring my child in for their first comprehensive eye exam?

A child’s first eye exam should take place at age 6 months. It’s important not to delay eye exams for young infants and children as some early eye problems can affect vision for life. Detecting vision problems early can keep a minor issue from becoming something serious (and more challenging to treat).

This was my first experience visiting an American eye clinic and I couldn't be more satisfied and su... re that I found the right place. It seems like this business has a bunch of hard-working staff members, and they were all ready to help the moment we walked through those doors. Although I found all staff members that I met today great, I've come to leave a review about one staff member in particular. As a business owner, I appreciate the work ethic and someone that just goes above and beyond. You have a staff member who deserves the reconniction and praise. Skyler the optition tech whom led me and my husband through our eye testing today was a absolute pleasure to work with. she made this first visit probably one of the most enjoyable “medical” visits I’ve ever had, and because of this me and my husband will purchase through this practice. Your business is lucky to have such a knowledgable hard worker and I look forward to now being part of The Family Eye Clinic because of the experience with especially her but so many other great workers on your team. Thank you

Today was our first visit and eye exams with Family Eye Care. Dr. Nhat Nguyen was awesome! He took t... ime to listen and was very thorough explaining everything to us. We then went to meet the Optician Taylor and she was very knowledgeable and gave us the best service. From the check in to check out they were all so friendly. We will definitely be using them from now on.

My first time at Family eye. My experience with Dr. Patel's Care was beyond my belief. She took time... to explain things and did a thorough eye exam..She is very nice and you can tell she truly cares about her patients. I would highly recommend her. My wait time in both the waiting room and the exam room was short, especially for having a same day scheduled appointment! Not to mention how great the service was. The staff provided excellent professional and courteous care.

Today was our first visit to the office, and we will return. We checked in using their mobile link a... nd had no additional paperwork to complete when we got into the office. Shortly after arriving, we were taken into the back by Tatum, Shelby, and Celeste, who provided exceptional medical work-ups. These ladies explained everything clearly and ensured our questions were answered before Dr. Chaaban entered the room. Dr. Chaaban was patient with my daughters and talked to them about their histories. This allowed them to play active roles in their care and placed them accountable. After the visit, Lisa helped my daughter pick the perfect pair of glasses and assisted in getting the best price for the glasses. Thank you the way you treated our family!
